Explore one of the most picturesque and geographically diverse of the Society Islands during this scenic tour of Huahine.
Depart the pier for a ride by coach to Fare, Huahine’s main village. Enjoy a leisurely guided stroll around the village, then visit a vanilla plantation, where you will observe the process of drying vanilla and learn different ways to cook with this ubiquitous spice.
Then, proceed to Maeva, one of Polynesia’s most important archaeological sites. Upon arrival, you will discover some well-preserved marae, or ancient Polynesian temples. You will also see fish traps that were built centuries ago and are still in use today. Your next visit will beto Faie, home of the famous blue-eyed eels that populate a stream running through the village. You will even watch as your guide feeds these enormous eels.
Your tour concludes with a stop at Huahine’s Belvedere Point for spectacular views and photo opportunities. Then, reboard your coach for the return ride to the pier.
Please note: If you wish to purchase vanilla during your tour, please bring U.S. dollars or French Pacific francs, as these are the only currencies that will be accepted.
